Professional Events

Professional fairs have historically been one of the most effective ways to grow your network and your business. Recently the Internet has made this contact easier, so it is not necessarily necessary, for example, for an entrepreneur to go to China if he wants to find the supplier of a particular raw material for his business. However, these events are still very important today for most business areas. Personal contact, rather than email, is still highly valued in business.

In this type of professional events, it is possible to make new contacts, connecting with potential new suppliers and customers. Being this type of events usually associated with a certain business area, the entrepreneur has the possibility of having contact with a large volume of people in his area, in a short time.

For the entrance of an event is a high value for what is the Portuguese reality. However, you should view this value as a potential return on investment.
